This matters because four of the most contested seats in the battle for control of the Ohio House are in Franklin County. The Washington Post notes:

Officials in Franklin County, which includes Columbus, said that Democrats cast more than twice as many ballots as Republicans -- 87,829 Democratic votes compared with 40,008 by registered members of the GOP. The county Board of Elections also received more than 90,000 early ballots from independents, said board spokesman Ben Piscitelli. Early voting is expected to account for about a third of the total votes cast.
